I will look into it.
I am using a Linux based router in many places so I can use a black-hole 
route which is faster then itpables.
But I have had couple cases in the past so I have used two methods.
For a DoS I redirected the traffic towards a block page while for a DDoS 
I have used black-hope route for an AS or even more.
